Species text
This spider has been abundant wherever it has been found, which makes the possibility of its being under-recorded less likely. The species has been recorded from Needs Ore Point, South Hampshire; Colne Point, North Essex; and Dunwich Marshes, East Suffolk, all since 1961. Trichoncus hackmani occurs mainly among tide litter and sparse vegetation on shingle. Threats include disturbance of shingle and destruction of its vegetation by, for example, trampling, off-road vehicles or construction of sea defences. On shingle beds outside nature reserves, holiday developments are also a possible threat. Tide litter should be left undisturbed. (Harvey et al. 2002). References
